Aston Villa vs Sheffield United Preview & Betting Tips


Aston Villa entertain Sheffield United at Villa Park as the Premier League returns on Wednesday evening. The two clubs are fighting for two different goals, so a tight clash is on the cards at Villa Park.

Aston Villa Form & News


Aston Villa are stuck in the relegation places. This is largely down to their leaky defence - which is the worst in the Premier League. Manager Dean Smith’s side would have been thankful for the break in action having been defeated in their previous five fixtures.

Villa went down 2-0 at Southampton in the league, before a 2-1 loss to Manchester City in the League Cup Final. Their last clash before the break was a 4-0 loss at high-flying Leicester City.

Goalkeeper Tom Heaton and striker Wesley are injured. Key midfielder John McGinn could be fit after six months out.

Sheffield United Form & News


Sheffield United are battling for a European place after a fantastic campaign. United were on a fine run of form before the coronavirus-enforced break, which included reaching the FA Cup quarter-finals.

Manager Chris Wilder’s charges beat Reading 2-1 in extra time of their FA Cup clash thanks to Billy Sharp’s strike. United’s last Premier League fixture ended in a 1-0 home victory over Norwich, with Sharp scoring again. 

Wilder has a fully-fit squad with David McGoldrick, Lys Mousset, Oli McBurnie, and Billy Sharp competing to start up front.
